    FRIGGIN'.

    Every time I think I am pretty-somewhat-kind-of-okay-maybe-yeah sure I want a BB, someone posts something that makes me totally unsure again.

    THANKS. >.<!

    When you got into the hammock my first thought was "why isn't he laying diagonal." Then I remembered it was the RR.....

    Backpackhiker, find a spot to get the suspension angles correct, then you will be REALLY stoked

    My first hang in the RR was less than impressive for this reason. Once I found 2 trees farther apart it was much better. Nice initial review, I seem to be enjoying mine the more I use it

    Nice teaser. So I've seen your reviews of the Lawson and JRB hammocks, where can I find your review of the Eureka Chrysalis hammock? Warbonnet RR seems to have your thumbs up so far. I'm going to check weights and adaptability to acting as a bivy before making a commitment though. Thanks for the posts so far.

    In my honest opinion of any bridge hammock..you have to use it a bit and learn to enjoy it, before you can give it a honest opinion as its always a new learning process as you will lay in it totally differently from a gathered end hammock. We are all so used to finding a sweet spot in a gathered end hammock and with a bridge, after giving it a week or so try,and playing with it a bit,you will find how comfy they really are.

    Bridge hammocks like a bit less than 30 degrees on the suspension angle. Probably closer to 15 or 20. You really do want the hammock to look like a suspension bridge... With the outer edges of the hammock bowed down and the inside bottom of the hammock just starting to bow up. For me, at 6'4, this puts my attachment heights right about eye level for the hammock to be at a comfortable entry height. A gathered end for me I am usually placing my straps up as high as I can reach.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!
